Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse draped in an American flag, confidently striding toward the sunrise, carrying a laurel and oak bouquet. "LIBERTY" stretches overhead with the year beneath her feet, "IN GOD WE TRUST" behind her.
The reverse, designed by John Mercanti, portrays a heraldic eagle with a shield grasping an olive branch and arrows, accompanied by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "W" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
